22 oz bottle Table and Vine, West Springfield, MA. Cost $5.99. Nice frothy off-white head. Nice thick, sticky lace down my English Pint glass. Aroma has roast, bitter chocolate, and smoky wood. Taste is roast, some earthy, light bittersweet chocolate. Some charred malt as well. Very dry, with a lingering bitterness. Light smokiness. Overall, a well-made dry stout. Good flavor and very drinkable if you like dry stouts, I do! Bit above average here. blankboy (7808) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 22, 2008

Pours a rich dark brown, nearly black, with a thin tan head. Roasty malt aroma has some smoke character to it. Body starts lightly sweet and very dry, like a desert, earthy and smoky. Somewhat thin mouthfeel for a stout. Finishes warming and dry. Ughsmash (7510) - Pewaukee, Wisconsin, USA - SEP 14, 2008
Bomber. Poured clear deep brown, leaving a frothy ring of tan head at the edges. The aroma picked up dry-roasted semi-sweet chocolates with pine needle hoppage around.. quite a lot of green hop impression, and I must say I enjoyed it. The flavor had dry cocoa and slightly darker chocolates at the core with coffee and pine bitterness surrounding.. finished piney with a chocolate impression.. very tasty. Light-medium bodied with plenty of bitterness and a dry impression on the palate.. well-composed, and one of the best dry stouts I’ve tried.

UPDATED: JAN 18, 2009 Bottle (22oz). Shared with blankboy, garthicus and GregClow - my bottle via trade with glouglouburp. Hazy, near opaque reddish-brown, possessed of an average creamy lasting light brown head. LOVE the aroma - dry nutty cocoa deep roast sweet malt, with mild herbal bitterness - very nice. The taste is also dry, of coffee beans, cocoa powder, semi-sweet chocolate, perhaps a touch sour in the finish. Average at best body, creamy, mildly astringent, with a dry dusty-bitter finish. More than decent, loses a couple of points for a slightly weak and acidic finish. ClarkVV (6873) - Boston, Massachusetts, USA - MAY 20, 2005
2005 bottle from City Market in Burlington. Pour reveals a clear blackish brown, with no red tinges that I can make out. Head is moderate, and dark tan, but seems to recede fairly readily, leaving little lacing. Aroma is not terribly expressive, mostly roast, bitter dark chocolate, but what it does have is strength. This is one of the few dry stouts where the aroma is actually notable when the bottle is open. I didnt have to bury my nose in the snifter to get this one. Flavor - Wow, that’s dry. The light roast and bits of lactose and caramel from the nose don’t prepare me for the amount of attenuation on it. Not watery though, and a moderate carbonation. Bit of a prickly mouthfeel, all told, the dry roast not really helping. Moderate acidity, but somehow, my palate gets used to the dryness and there is some sweet malt as it warms. Finishes with lots of roast, notes of coal and tobacco, chocolate graham crackers. Hops apparency is very low. Medium body. jgb9348 (6482) - Arlington (Pentagon City), Virginia, USA - JUL 30, 2011
Very dark brown body with a lighter copper glow near the bottom with a nice thick three centimetre tall light brown head. Aroma of roasted malt, light hops, anise, nuts and a bit of caramel. Medium-bodied; Deep pungent roasty malt flavours at first then shows a nice complexity of hops, then a shows a dry oaky note and a good dose of anise. Aftertaste shows a lot of caramel, some licorice and other spices and all finished off with a dry, bittering malty bite and some alcohol. Overall, a nice dry stout that shows a lot of good character and some potent bittering flavours that might be a bit too strong for some. I sampled this 65 cL bottle purchased from Liquor Outlet in Boonton, New Jersey on 24-July-2011 sampled at home in Washington on 30-July-2011. dmac (6471) - Toms River, New Jersey, USA - MAR 15, 2012
22 oz bomber from Spirits Toms River. Poured a medium density pitch black body underneath a large bubbly light beige head. Aroma of lactose, dry dark chocolate, dark toast. The body is loaded with srong carbonation over a medium body that finishes with a quick burst of bitterness pushed through with more carbonation. Flavor is lactose, burnt notes, lightly burnt toast, tonic water. Body and flavor could use a bump but still not bad for the money. Cletus (6368) - Connecticut, USA - JAN 10, 2009
Pours brown with a thin tan head. Smells of roasted malt and chocolate. Extremely astringent flavor to the point where I had to dump this as the astringency overwhelmed everything else.
